After-Work Meal Goes Awry, Catches Oven On Fire

Posted: Updated:

An apartment near NW 14th and Robinson is left with severe smoke damage after the oven caught fire overnight.

Fire crews tell us someone inside the apartment turned on their oven to pre-heat for a meal but what they didn't know is someone else in the apartment had put Tupperware and other items inside the oven. That's when the plastic caught fire.

Crews say they were told the containers were put inside the oven because the apartment was set to be sprayed for pests today.

The fire was contained to only the inside of the oven but smoke filled the entire apartment, causing about $5,000 in damage.

The residents are OK and had to stay at a friend's place for the night.
